Giannis Antetokounmpo is Dr. G

Giannis Antetotkounmpo nailed an incredible finger roll, and we have a new nickname for him.

The Internet has fallen in love with Giannis Antetokounmpo, the Milwaukee Bucks' 19-year-old Greek rookie, and for good reason.

He has freakishly large comic book hands. He does double alley-oops. He get smothies (sic). And he's still growing, still figuring out how to play sports, and because he was playing in a second-division Greek league last year, everything is the most exciting thing in the world to him.

Today, we figured out our nickname for him: Dr. G.

It's easier to spell than "Giannis Antetokounmpo," right?

We should also talk about the Antetokounmpo family, who was able to attend one of Giannis' games for the first time tonight.
